Michael and I were so sorry to hear about your mother and wife Imogene; I know Michael and I missed her energy, compassion and wit once she left Westminster College. I can't tell you how much Michael and I enjoyed having dinner that time while they were still residing in Salt Lake, we always planned on visiting when we were in Florida, we are so sorry we didn't. Please know if there is anything Michael or I can do all you have to do is ask. Imogene was such a force of life and was truly such a wonderful person and her absence will be felt by many.

Imogene was one of my very favorite colleagues from Westminster. Upon hearing that she was gone, I was immediately saddened as I remembered our friend, always loving and kind, always showing compassion for students, and always taking the time to ask how you were doing. As a staff member in the beginning of my tenure at the college, I was unaccustomed to this kind of warmth and support from a faculty member. When my husband John applied to the school of nursing and was accepted, Imogene welcomed him and was almost as excited as I was. Imogene was passionate about her colleagues and her students, caring for each of them as though they were her own family - at least that is how she made you feel in her presence. I will always remember her warm smile and our many conversations. Please accept our condolences from our family to yours.

Imogene was the Dean of the School of Nursing at Westminster College. She cared deeply about the education of nursing students, the students themselves, and the nursing faculty. She walked the campus regularly as she smoked and knew more about what was going on at the College than those of us who were in classrooms, clinicals, or offices.
She was also instrumental in establishing Rocky Mountain Parish Nurse Ministries in 1999. She took both the parish nurse and the parish nurse educators courses with me. Her insights and experiences enlivened both of these courses. She taught several of the first contingents of nurses in Utah who wanted to become parish nurses. She taught us that "No" is a Holy word.
I will miss her love and her laughter.
